Aw man, I was exhausted when I got up this morning. I guess I’m not cut out for too many 3am nights anymore! hehe…I seem to have a lot of them lately.
I started my morning with a much needed cup of coffee, then set to work making a batch of Tina’s Oatmeal Raisin Bars. We had a BBQ with some of FH’s work buddies to attend…and although we were told not to bring anything I hate to go empty handed. Those bars are so quick and easy to whip up, it took no time at all.
Sorry no photos at the BBQ (explaining my blog to Navy strangers wasn’t something on my to-do list today!), other than this one of their awesome view. The weather was crappy today, but can you imagine what this would be like on a sunny day? AMAZING.
The food was lovely and simple, so it was easy to eat healthy. I enjoyed one Strongbow cider (I was driving), one homemade bar-b-qued chicken & veggie skewer, two of my oat bars, and a few trips to the veggie and fruit platters. Yum Yum.
Once we got home, I got to relax because today was FH’s turn for Pizza Sunday. Nice. Look out world, heart attack pizza coming through!!!
This week’s offering: Bacon Double Cheeeeeeseburger
His crust was doughy and lovely. I got him to give me the recipe for you guys this time…he added his own spices to jazz it up, but click here if you want to try it out.
Topped with sauce, seasoned ground beef, TONS of cheese (mixed cheddars PLUS mozza AND parm), crispy bacon, diced onions, and canned mushrooms. Cheeeeese heaven.
I could only handle one (motherin’ huge) piece and served mine with salad so the veggies would help keep me “balanced”. haha. In the big salad bowl: mixed lettuces, tomatoes, yellow peppers, cukes, and matchstick carrots with balsamic vinaigrette.
For the rest of the night it’s been water, water, water…and tomorrow there will definitely some sweating time at the gym!
